How to Know When
It's Time to See Your GYN

You're Experiencing Pelvic Pain

There are different kinds of pelvic pain — from sharp to dull and aching — but they all warrant a trip to the doctor.

You've Noticed Unusual Discharge

Vaginal discharge is normal — it’s your body’s way of staying clean and healthy. But if you notice any green, gray or yellow discharge paired with a bad odor, it’s time to book an appointment with a gynecologist.

Your Periods Are Suddenly Erratic

All cycles are different, but if you’ve never had a heavy period and all of a sudden you’re going through multiple pads or tampons, you’ll want to talk to a doctor. The same goes for missed periods, especially if you aren’t trying to get pregnant.

It's Been a Year or More Since Your Last Visit

While it’s true that most women don’t need a Pap test every year, you still need to see your gynecologist annually for a pelvic exam, which checks for cysts, STDs and other issues.

You're Having Mid-Cycle Bleeding

A little spotting between periods is usually nothing to worry about, but heavy or painful bleeding in the middle of your cycle could signal a bigger issue.
